Sales Predictions Are In: Pink Set To Score First #1 Album

Published: Wednesday 19th Sep 2012 by Sam

10 years.

Indeed, that’s how long Alecia Moore – known more commonly as Pink – has dazzled the industry with her powerful-pipes and rebellious personna.

It’s surprising, though, that her incredible success hasn’t brought with it a chart-topping album on home-soil – until now. For, according to this week’s sales estimates, the 33 year old’s sixth studio album ‘The Truth About Love’ is on course to open at #1 on the Billboard 200 next week.

Eager to know what it’s set to sell to achieve the feat? The answer awaits below…

According to Hits Daily Double, the ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ led set to open with first-week sales of…

200,000 – 225,000

Nearest rivals, G.O.O.D Music are on course to debut at #2 with sales of 170k-190k, while Nelly Furtado‘s ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ is literally nowhere to be seen. However, its current iTunes position of #48 should give an indication of where it’s heading.

In any case, congratulations are most certainly in order for Pink. She’s one of the most consistent (and consistently underrated) artists in recent memory – so it’s great to see her finally achieving the success her talent calls for. And with new single ‘Try’ flying straight into the iTunes top 10 today, it could well be the legs that struts the album towards Platinum status in the months ahead. More power to her!

    YAAAAAAASSSSSSS!!!!!!!

    I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF THIS B**** SINCE 1999.

    “BLOW ME (ONE LAST KISS)” WASN’T AND STILL ISN’T MY FAVOURITE SONG OF HERS, ACTUALLY – I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST A STR8 OUT MESS, BUT “S*** LIKE YOU” IS SLAYING ME BACK AND FORTH AS IS THE REST OF THE ALBUM.

    CONGRATS PINK. TRUE TALENT “ALWAYS” PREVAILS. YOU DESERVE IT.

    • Jamilaaaaaaa September 19, 2012

      Absolutely Agree.

      “Blow me”… was just generic as HELL but I bought her album today – it’s awesome.

      #TeamPink.

      • HOOD HIVE September 19, 2012

        IKR They are so delusional that’s why i stop stanning for her, i won’t be caught dead letting people know i’m fan of beyonce becuase of these hood hive that stans for her. that’s why i only f*** with lady gaga, lana del rey, rihanna, p!nk, adele, and katy perry.

      • HOOD HIVE September 19, 2012

        LMAO DEAD yeah i just look at the time of the comments and they are just a second apart…..

  2. omri September 19, 2012

    Congrats for Pink!! she truly deserves it, her album is fantastic <3

    sad for nelly floptado though…

    • Haw September 20, 2012

      Sad for Nelly…
      I really love her this album

  3. Beyonce’s Bush September 19, 2012

    How unfortunate. The Killers have a far better album. Pink acts all tough as though she’s god’s gift to music when in actual fact she’s just making reductive infantile garbage.

  4. I’m not throwing shade, but… September 19, 2012

    Wow! I was dissapointed by this album as it was same old Pink and thet “duet” with Lilly Allen Rose Cooper (or whatever she’s calling herself these days) is a straight mess. there is about two songs i like, but hey, good luck to her.

    • I’m not throwing shade, but… September 19, 2012

      Oh, and Nelly’s album. I usually like Furtardo andf i loved loose, but those vocals were like nails on a chalk board! I juast couldn’t listen. I also thought that although some of the beats were good the construction was bad… including the bonus tracks. She needs to start again.

  5. Kyle September 19, 2012

    I personally think this is her best album so she deserves it! Even though she hasn’t scored a #1 album yet, her album sales in general say enough. Her sales have always been consistent and have all had longevity on the charts (with the exception of “Try This”). She has had an amazing career so far. Much respect to her!

    • Lax September 19, 2012

      @KYLE Welllll at least she have not been nailed to
      the cross over not getting a #1 albums like they tries to hang
      ‘some out to dry because they Hit the top ten and not #1.

      @MC cosign!

  11. RomanNavi September 19, 2012

    Her album is f****** incredible. She never disappoints. Every song tells such a good story! It definitely deserves a #1…

    Just 1 question, why didn’t ppl judge Pink for not getting a #1 album until now, yet u stay on Rihanna’s d*** (even though on a global scales she pisses on ur fave?)

    • CzarM September 19, 2012

      Because unlike Rihanna, Pink actually has talent. Next question?

      • TeamBreezy September 19, 2012

        Talent is subjective, to each his own , so that “she aint talented” bull s*** doesnt really go a long way….And 7 years later we see it hasnt worked

      • Lax September 19, 2012

        @CZARM STFU U Worthless piece of crap, Rih don’t have a Gun to yo Empty Head making you listen to Her and Rih can still get it Up.

    • Blue The Real Hive September 19, 2012

      F*** YOU AND UR RIHANNA PINK IS WAY TALENTED THAN UR STUPID H** PUNK HAS SOLD NORE COPIES THAN R****

      • mr.m September 19, 2012

        Coz Rihanna has the biggest nose in the world
        which will never fit the #1 albums chart
        gurl bye

      • Lax September 19, 2012

        Rihanna and Her Navy Says Kiss Her & Her
        Navy’s Asses all around the Mofo Globe! Scumbags.

  12. JOHNVIDAL September 19, 2012

    Several things:
    – It ´s good to see an album surpassing 200,000 copies first week. It´s rare nowadays. Sad but true. So congrats (if the numbers end being like that)
    – Pink is not the Queen of anything (u need to be less generic for that)
    – I understand why Nelly Furtado was not going to have a hit… but how can someone flop that hard after having big success with the last one? It´s not like she changed her music very much. Do people really forget about that big way? wow

    • mr.m September 19, 2012

      Nelly is STUPID!
      coming back and release an English studio album,
      after 6 years of knowing nothing about her ass!
      that why she flopped harder than Ci-error!
      She lost her fan base and needs a re-introduction to the buz

  13. kelly September 19, 2012

    So pink is been ; around for 10 years; had multiple hits and has never had a number 1 album til now, and no one says a word.

    But 24 yr Rihanna gets verbally abused and hailed a loser and flop for also not having a number 1 in a country she does not even come from? You evil jealous pieces of shits. Even Jessie J album’s have never gone to number 1 in the uk – so f****** what? Rihanna sold more than pink to open at number 3

    If 33 is the cut off age for nUMBER 1 albums, then Rih is good. But, this fall……DIAMONDS WILL BE THE NUMBER 1 ALBUM IN THE USA AND ALL U haters can suck a penis.

    • CzarM September 19, 2012

      Blah-blah-blah. Take your bitter Rihanna ramblings on somewhere. Pink is actually talented, respected, isn’t over-saturated in the media, and has had albums that have gone multi-platinum — which is why her albums not going to #1 in the past has never been much noticed.

      Rihanna is a coddled and manufactured industry puppet who is forcefed to the public in obscene dosages. So her never having had a #1 album is a lot more conspicuous.

      • Lax September 19, 2012

        @Broke, busted Scumbags Rihanna is Holding Her Own and you can suck it, tuck it and stuff it Scumbags.

    • ADC143 September 19, 2012

      Rihanna fans swore that Talk That Talk would go to #1 and shut everyone up. I specifically remember some of the “Navy” (ugh at that silly name) people here saying that Rihanna’s first week sales get bigger with each album, and predicting that she would open with a bigger number than Loud.

      Want me to remind you of what happened?

      It actually sold less than Loud’s opening week (and Loud’s first week sales weren’t impressive), failed to break 200k, and was nicely c*** blocked from the #1 spot by Nickelback and Michael Buble.

      Please.

      Get over it. The fact is that few people see Rihanna’s albums as something that they need to drop everything to get. If it costs more than $1.29, most people aren’t interested.

      • Lax September 19, 2012

        And Just How long has Pink been in the Industry?
        I want wait because i already Know. This is about Pink and RIHANNA’S name is etched into yo wood Heads and i do Understand, Scumbags.
        Trying to Pit Other Artists aganist Rihanna isn;t going to dim RIHANNA’S light If anything Her light will shine Even Bigger and Brighter Bum bytches.

    • Blue The Real Hive September 19, 2012

      Pink ha sold more copies than R****!! She has surpass 100m records b**** it’s a crime to compare pink to R**** Pink s talented

      • Natasha September 20, 2012

        You need to stop calling herout of her name. The more you do the less I want to support and like Beyonce. You’re calling Rihanna out of her name of all the things you idolize Beyonce for ( only you called it class). That makes you and everyone else who are delusional and biased HYPOCRITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SIN is SIN, sweet heart. Meaning In GOD’s eyes Beyonce is the same as Rihanna. If Rinna is a w**** so is Beyonce. If Rihanna is a s*** so is Beyonce. If Rihanna talentless so is Beyonce.

      • sharon September 21, 2012

        @ Natasha

        so motherfuckin right!! im a big beyonce fan but sometimes her fans make me sick and uncomfortable to be one. beyonce fans are so ignorant to done grade everyone else and talk s*** thats why beyonce got so much haters. its because of the fans!!

      • sharon September 21, 2012

        *down grade*

  14. kelly September 19, 2012

    Nelly furtado is 48 on itunes? Rita Ora’s flop album is 51 on itunes; ebing outsold by Jayz WTT. Speak on that!

    • kelly September 19, 2012

      rita ora is 54 on itunes

  15. JER September 19, 2012

    Don’t even try to act like a #1 album is an event anymore because it’s not. The list of nobodies with #1 albums grows every week. Meanwhile Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, Dionne Warwick, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight never had a #1 album

  16. Benron (King Of The Navy) September 19, 2012

    You’re all bitter hypocrites. Making fun of everyone sales but now Pink has an incredible feat for getting 200k sold.

    K.

  17. White girl mob September 19, 2012

    TGJ you are forgetting kreayshawn it’s funny how ya seem to not give a f*** about her. Where is her first week sales predictions at huh?? F****** d**** WTF

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) September 19, 2012

      Kreayshawn will slay!

  18. Blue The Real Hive September 19, 2012

    Pink 6th attemp going straight to number 1 well R**** 7th attemp say no more navy y’all broke ass!!! Wow pink sold 65m copies world wide that’s amazing way over xstina

  19. CBrownGurl September 19, 2012

    So typical for Rihanna fans to storm into a article not about her and try to make her the topic. It doesn’t matter how long it took Pink to get a #1 album, she now has one…unlike Rihanna.

    • TeamBreezy September 19, 2012

      That aint the point gurl and u know it! When Rihanna does achieve a #1 album you better know that TGJ is going to find a way to throw shade at it and question why it took so long .. Look at that trey songz guy when he nabbed his first #1 album all TGJ tried to do was be shady .. Icons like Diana Ross and many others dont have grammys or even a #1 album but that doesnt take away from the fact that Diana Ross is an icon of black music

      Congrats Pink!

  20. White girl mob September 19, 2012

    TGJ have ya ever heard of a rapper name kreayshawn? Well she had a album out to called “something bout kreay” why the f*** you ain’t mention her she is one of the most respect hardest working girls in the music industry. I feel like people are distracting kreayshawn they think this is a joke.

    Nobody gives a f*** about Rihanna navy or beehives or teamminaj they all some f****** wild monkey. F*** p!nk man WTF is going on

  21. Auntie_Jackie September 19, 2012

    Look at P!nk, finally snatching wigs with her singles (though Blow Me was an awful son!) at 33 years old. I think the U.S. in finally coming to appreciate her and what she’s achieved since she SMASHED her performance at the Grammy awards with Glitter in the Air. She’s always sold records though! People just don’t know it. She is the undisputed Queen of Pop/Rock, with Kelly Clarkson in a close second place.

    Who the f*** brought up Rihanna in this post? Really? P!nk has not only sold more records, been out longer, can out-sing, out-dance and perform circles around Rihanna. Oh, and now P!nk has a #1 album, too. P!nk & Beyonce are more similar. In fact, they had a pepsi commercial together, with Britney, another vet.

    • Rock n’ Roll lifestyle. September 19, 2012

      p!nk and beyonce are simmilar,\ o.O girl sit yo ass down.

      • Auntie_Jackie September 19, 2012

        Ummm I was referring to their stature, longevity and worth ethic, retarded b****. The caliber of their career is far more similar than P!nk and Rihanna, for example.

  22. gio88 September 19, 2012

    Pink , for people who likes music and talent is not underrated , simply she has no media attention , but that’s important just for artist like rihanna that has all her success thanks to that!

  23. TeamBreezy September 19, 2012

    Actually, its been over 12 years, not 10 .. but then Im not shocked at the lack of fact checking and unbiased “writing” this site gives its readers. Congrats to Pink, the album is pretty good 🙂

  24. Benron (King Of The Navy) September 19, 2012

    Anty Hwey, Im am happy for Pink! Congraaaaaaaaadulashuns!

    Congradulations!

  25. unnami September 19, 2012

    so amazing Furtado’s album is nowhere and shitty generic P!nk album is on no. 1? sad, truly sad.

  26. mr.m September 19, 2012

    When will Ci-error?

  27. Girrrl September 19, 2012

    How come y’all didn’t come for Pink for not having a #1 album before this? Y’all stay on Rihanna’s c*** but failed to mention it about Pink. Haters

  28. bibi93 September 19, 2012

    I love Pink!!

  29. Suicide Blonde September 19, 2012

    I’m happy for her, i love her but i want The Killers to be #1 too.

  30. Monstarebel September 19, 2012

    NOT GUNA HATE ON PINK THOSE ARE SOME DECENT NUMBERS CONGRATS DIVA!!!

  31. Mc the place to be!! September 19, 2012

    yay pink!!!!

  32. commanderofthedancefloor September 19, 2012

    first congrats pink, but this is further proof that a #1 album is not s***, it sounds pretty but it isnt anything big anymore. this isnt even the highest first week sales for pink but it is her first #1 album which tells you something.

  33. L21480 September 19, 2012

    If Pink’s having never scored a #1 album before this was usually not talked about, then that says that she’s more than her chart statistics. If Rihanna’s inability to score a #1 album is consistently talked about, then that says that she isn’t.

    Pink as a musician/performer/celebrity has character and substance, as does her music. People have other things to talk about when it comes to her and her music than just where it lands on the charts. Rihanna, by comparison, is just an empty by-the-numbers pop star whose value is ONLY measured by her last hit.

    THIS is why nobody shat on Pink for her lack of a #1 album and why people do s*** on Rihanna for the same reason. Pink’s artistry is respected. Rihanna’s isn’t, because she’s no artist. She’s just a shallow pop star who is marketed to shallow kids. So when she fails to top the charts, it’s glaring because that’s the main goal for her. That’s all she exists for.

    This is why Pink will still be around in 20 years and Rihanna won’t.

    • MsThing485 September 19, 2012

      Brutally honest.

    • mr.m September 19, 2012

      I’m not a big fan of P!NK or Rihanna
      BUT gurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl that 110% RIIIIIGHT!!!
      tell EM’

    • Natasha September 20, 2012

      Says who, you????????????? Thats hilarious. I love Pink. But best believe Rihanna will still be around , okay!!!!!!!!! You’re NOT GOD so you don’t know.
      GOD gave all of us gifts & talents, and if He the creator is able to see Rihanna as a talented young woman…..Why Can’t a douce bag and a sinner such as yourself and all those who ignorantly agreed with you have aproblm seind and admitting that?????????

    • sharon September 21, 2012

      YESSSSSSS!!!!

  34. theman September 19, 2012

    Pink is awesome. This is amazing. She does pop/rock in a great way. She is just a great artist altogether. Rihanna is not even in Pink’s league. Pink is very consistent. Her sales are great and so are her records. Itunes is not the end all be all in terms of album sales though. Hopefully, Nelly Furtado can atleast cover 50k. This era for her has been completely mishandled.

  35. aishaaguilerakeys September 19, 2012

    Good for Pink. Nelly’s album doesn’t sound bad, though, just because it isn’t doing well right now doesn’t mean it’s a bad album. I still respect her for doing something different and believing in it enough to keep promoting it, despite the sales.

  36. BILL September 20, 2012

    Who gives a s*** ABOUT HER! Where is bad 25!!

  37. B**** September 20, 2012

    Lmao at rihanna navy B**** your fav don’t Have a number 1 album after 6 albums? Yet you claim she so huge but it took her a Year to go plat in the stats and you call 4 a flop? Of 4 is a flop then MOTS AGLM RR TTT are all flops then lmao

  38. B**** September 20, 2012

    And Pink music sounds all the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This album and Funhouse no diff from each other smh
